Umm. Did it actually remove anything?  The maintainer probably listed
var/www in the dirs for the package, which means, that on install, if
the directory is missing for some odd reason, it will be created.  On
removal or purge (or both, I forget), it will try and remove the
directory.  However, if there is anything in the directory, it will not
be removed.  That is warning you are seeing.  Please verify that it
*actually* removed stuff from /var/www, which I suspect it did not.  If
it did not, please close the bug report.  If it did, then good catch.
